In 2009, the National Council of Teachers of English declared October 20th a day to celebrate the many ways in which we use writing every day. This year, the annual National Day on Writing celebration hosted by the Center for Writing Excellence and staffed by English 397 (Writing Center Theory and Practice) students was a success once again!
Dozens of students at UWEC created unique haikus in various languages in Davies, earning cookies and other baked treats for their creative endeavors.
The McIntyre Library location saw a steady stream of student writers, as well. Both the Story Wall, where students collaborated with others in the writing process by adding one sentence at a time to a growing tale, and a Two-Sentence Horror Story activity encouraged people to take a minute from their busy day and write.
We look forward to many more National Day on Writing celebrations to come!
